Britney Spears' "Hold It Against Me" Debuts At #1

No real surprise here. On Monday Billboard all but confirmed Weaveney's new single "Hold It Against Me" was going to debut at #1 on the Hot 100 chart this week, and now here we are.

The full chart will be published tomorrow, but basically the jam sold 411,000 downloads and Spears is now only the second artist ever to have two singles debut at #1 here in the States (the other being Mariah Carey, who entered at the top with "Fantasy," "One Sweet Day" and "Honey").

Now The Weaved One has a fourth chart-topper to her name, while producer-songwriter Max Martin has 10. And this couldn't come soon enough, because if either Bruno Mars' "Grenade" or Katy Perry's "Firework" flip-flopped and was #1 again, I was going to swallow a grenade.

    How far do you think it'll drop in the 2nd week though?

    Also, as a gay man, I was dutybound to be won over by this song that I rolled my eyes upon first hearing, and now I can't get enough of it. Especially when she sings the word "hazyyayyayay"

    I wonder why she is smelling her fingers - does she not wash them after going to the toilet or something?

    I also love that her songs are still basically about her going nuts, or 'cra-zay', over cock in the clubs.

    Watch it drop down the Top 10 like a hooker on a bacon-greased pole next week. Its position is the end-result of pure hype.
